I am growing everbering and june berring types and I do not have much sun in the garden, which may be the reason I do not have big harvest.
The first type of berries I got was Ozark beauty - and the plants and 3 years old now.
You can see the plant inself is pretty healthy after the winter. I was covering them with oak leaves.
It was a lit of snow this winter and some of plants did not survive - I see the growing point is rotting and 3-4 plants so I have to remove them.
Last year I planted 3 more bareroot types - 1. Honeoye
That's how the bed was look like after the winter - plants covered with wood shaving and leaves.
I did not see berries last (the first) summer.
I checked the plants, removed the old mulch, added compost to the roots and new mulch - wood shaving again.
The Tristar plants after cleaning.
My absolutely love is alpine strawberry - last year I added to my collection -
Small plants, with green-yellow leaves and everbering berries with very strong smell!
Not so much but as a treat!
This one is a wild strawberry that was brought from NH forest and overwintered here.
